HIKING & BIKING Instead of meeting your friends for brunch , why not get together for a hike? It's cheaper and less fattening and will lift your spirits.  Although it's been widely proven that regular exercise can increase a person's physical and MENTHAL HEALTH and result in a longer life. Hiking can help you lose weight, improve your physical well-being, reduce tension and enhance your mental health.

For women, regular hiking can help prevent osteoporosis. Working against the force of gravity helps increase bone density and slows calcium loss, thus strengthening bones and making them less susceptible to breaking. And believe it or not, trails are gentler on the joints than pavement. Hiking is clearly going to use your legs and you might think that this is really the only part of your body that needs to be 'conditioned'. However, you might be surprised to learn that hiking will involve just about every muscle group in the body.

 

 
Florida Keys Tropical Environment
 
The geography and natural resources of the Florida Keys make them among the most diverse of ecosystems in North America. The chain of over 1,700 islands that make up the archipelago of the Keys extends approximately 220 miles southwest along the southern tip of the Florida peninsula. As recently as 125,000 years ago, the islands themselves were actually part of a submerged coral reef. Today the exposed limestone bedrock supports a diverse sampling of plants and animals, including unique hardwood HAMMOCKS, numerous species of palms and more types of trees than can be found in all of Europe.
 
The Florida Keys have more species of native trees-about 110-than any other location north of Mexico.
 

Tropical hardwood hammocks are one of many natural communities found in Florida. The tropical hardwood hammocks are characterized by tropical plants. The word "hammock" was first used by early inhabitants to mean a cool and shady place. Later, settlers of Florida used the word "hammock" to indicate areas that were slightly higher in elevation from the rest of the land. Today, the term hammock is used in Florida to describe forest habitats that are typically higher in elevation than surrounding areas and that are characterized by hardwood forests of broad-leaved evergreens. Tropical hardwood hammocks occur in south Florida, Keys.This is a subtropical zone where danger from frost is rare and tropical trees and shrubs  are able to survive.

 
The Florida Keys, our tropical forest is the only one of its kind in the continental United States. It is a frost-free environment.With ample rain fall to maintain growth for most trees  in the dry season (Dec. through late May). It is home to many endangered and threatened species of both flora and fauna. Tropical forests hold at least half of all the variety of life on Earth.Biodiversity is a term used to describe the variety of life here. Keys are a major migratory stopping point for neo-tropical birds from as far as South America, as well as it being home to many rare birds in the Keys.The upper keys are home of the state’s rare plants, butterflies, and even snails. Black-whiskered Vireo and Mangrove Cuckoo nest here, and White-crowned Pigeon can be common except in winter. Gray Kingbird is frequent along the highway in spring and summer. The best times for birding are during the spring and fall migration. Some of the more unique birds that can be seen are great white herons, antillean nighthawk, gray kingbird, black-whiskered vireo, white-crowned pigeon and the elusive mangrove cuckoo.This is habitat for 285 species of birds.ospreys, hawks, pelicans, cormorants, terns, and herons....
 

Typically found along the water's edge, the red mangrove can be identified by its tangled, reddish colored roots called "prop-roots." Prop roots extending from the trunk of the red mangrove stabilize the the tree in the soft mud.This massive system of the red mangrove prop roots in the swamp lines the sea edge, forming a protective barrier against storms. 

 

 

Mangrove coast produces an unique environment by blending land and sea. Mangroves grow along many of the worlds tropical and subtropical coastlines. The mangroves arching prop root system traps silt and detritus, eventually building up islands of dry land.

Mangrove Food Chain: The leaves from the mangrove tree fall year round. They quickly decompose. This provides food for small organisms. These small organisms are food for small animals. The small animals provide food for larger animals such as birds, fish and people.

 
 
A small tropical oasis right on US soil, the Florida Keys. It  has long been a haven for tourists of every kind. You name it, and chances are someone has gone there looking for it… from the infamous Fountain of Youth, to sunken pirate's treasures, to artistic inspiration, to the catch of the day.The Florida Keys will always be an exotic world of tropical adventure to those who visit, and a special tropical paradise to those who who are lucky enough to stay.
